We bring together researchers, entrepreneurs, subject matter experts and parallel leading industries to create a world-class legacy of technological excellence.

Technical categories

Our program features three technical categories:
  • Ocean Engineering – which includes working with the ARC Research Hub for Offshore Floating Facilities to further industry impact and encourage research outcomes.
  • Plant of the Future – which includes working with the Australian Centre for LNG Futures Training Centre to explore the emerging fields of process intensification, additive manufacturing, next generation digital and robotics.
  • Enterprise artificial intelligence and analytics – which involves applying the latest in analytics and sensor technology to control and automate high-cost, high-risk or error-prone tasks.

These categories are supported by a range of external collaborators including UWA (Ocean Works and RiverLab), CSIRO, MIT, Monash and Curtin. Further information about Woodside FutureLab can be downloaded:
